Trivia

In keeping with the original Smurf albums by Peyo, Brainy Smurf is repeatedly hit on the head with a hammer (or by a stick) by the other Smurfs to shut him up. This was deemed to violent and too easy to copy by American censors, so in the later Hanna-Barbera cartoon series, he is always catapulted out (either by being tossed out or kicked) of their sight instead.

Quotes

Narrator: Once upon a time... wait a minute! This isn't just another once upon a time story. This story doesn't follow the book at all. It all began in a kingdom a long time ago in the middle ages. By decree of the good king, the kingdom was having a great celebration.

The pre-Hanna-Barbara Smurfs
8 March 2007 | by Hailey-7See all my reviews

Most of us, remember "The Smurfs" as the Hanna-Barbara show from the 80s, right? Well, this isn't the Smurfs you grew up with. This movie was released in Belgium before anyone in the US knew what they were and later dubbed into English in 1983 to appease the masses yearning for those little blues freaks of nature. Well in the movie, Johan, a young knight and his annoying dwarf sidekick Peewee find a magic flute and a bad guy (not Gargamel!) steals it or something and they have to find it or something, they learn that the flute was made by the Smurfs, who live in an dimension or something so they drop acid or what and go to this other dimension. They meet the Smurfs, well more or less Papa Smurf and his crew. There's no Smurfette, no Baby, no Smurflings etc and they all sing and speak in unison. Hefty doesn't and have a tattoo and Brainy can't shut up. Johan and PeeWee explains to Papa what happened, and the Smurfs have to cut down another tree and make another flute to help Johan and PeeWee. I don't really what happens next all I remember is it end with Pee Wee throwing a hissy fit or something. Any way the Smurfs don't appear until like an hour in the movie, so it's kind of boring, mostly!
